Rather than giving everyone a job and a speedboat like he promised, President Obama has booked an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon next Tuesday, because he is more concerned about laughing than America, or something. Anyway, it’s Obama’s first late-night gig since his October appearance on The Tonight Show, where Jay Leno asked him about the deaths of Gaddafi and Osama Bin Laden, Occupy Wall Street, and why he doesn’t like his daughters watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Expect Obama’s Fallon appearance to take a far more serious tone, as Fallon will no doubt ruthlessly lay into him about his Syria plans and the recent Secret Service scandal with his usual fearless journalistic verve before introducing musical guest Dave Matthews. Or, you know, maybe they’ll just sing something together.
